How do you set that up in Sum3d?
How do you set that up? And whats the factor that determines when the software tells you to change the burs? Is it a number you figured out or something you just know? Very interesting since I'm also using sum3d.
Where are Roland's made or assembled?
Roland DG (DG= Digital Group) builds the DWX in our state of the art factory in Hamamatsu Japan. The factory uses a method called "digital Yatai" and each machine is hand assembled by a single technician. You can see a video that details our award winning process on YouTube: Rolands Digital Factory in Yatai - YouTube
Roland has regional offices around the world. Roland DGA (Digital Group America) provides service and support for North America and Latin America from our Irvine CA facility.

So Glenn, no chance of me getting my hands on the computer guided schematics to build or disassemble the DWX50........ Is there??? ))
And yes Scott, I could take it apart

Yeah, but could you put it back together.....
Notice I left that part out lol
Glenn where are you located? The Irvine Ca facility?
Yes Al, I work for the Roland DGA office which is based in Irvine, CA.
LOL, no they won't let any of those files out of the company. All of the machines are designed and engineered in SolidWorks CAD. This lets them test virtual prototypes for optimum strength, material use, ease of assembly etc. before they make the first physical prototype. Once the design is finalized the 3D CAD files are used to generate the assembly instructions for the factory floor. It is really cool to see the whole process from start to finish.
How to get these machines to attach sprue to the copings? Dont the STL files need some sort of data pack? Im confused
Sprues are added in the CAM software.
The basic workflow is: dental model> 3D scan>Design in CAD software> Export .STL> Populate puck, sprue, generate toolpaths in CAM software>output to milling machine

Hello Shane, my name is Dennis, and I recently bought a brand new DWX-50, but I don't have any CAM software for it. I heard that both sum3d and dentMill (by Delcam) are good, but they are a little pricey for me at the moment. Can you please give me a hint on where did you get yours for 6000$? my email is firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!
You are in the US?
Either CAP, in MA or myself could sell you the CAM.
$6000 is a bargin for 5-axis Dental CAM. It's not going to get any cheaper this decade.
I don't think I could even match that price. We'd have to charge you a bit more for an open version of sum3d 5-axis, plus training.
Yep, I am in New York area (Brooklyn if to be precise). Can you give a call at 347-210-5953 so we can discuss it in more detailed manner? Thanks
Yeah it was a package deal when we bought the mill through Sagemax. It was over a year ago, but if I'm wrong I apoligize. I believe that it cost us $6000. Sagemax is a sponser on this sight, you can give them your info and they can help you. The people there are really great.
Who is Joe? Me?
I am Scott, but you can call me Joe if you want?
My bad Scott. My eyes are playing tricks on me
how many minutes is that per burr?
